Pet killer arrested for breaching probation

pet killer

Pet killer Kayla Bourque, who a judge has described as “psychopathic” and a “sexual sadist,” was arrested Thursday for allegedly breaching conditions of her release from jail.

In 2013, B.C. Corrections issued a rare public notification to alert the public that Bourque had been released from jail with plans to live in Vancouver.

Bourque has offended violently against both people and animals and is considered high risk to re-offend, according to the Ministry of Justice.

She was arrested in March 2012 after she boasted of disemboweling and dismembering her cat and told a friend she fantasized about shooting a homeless person or killing someone in residence at Simon Fraser University.

Reading this story about Bourque reminds me of two other dog killers, Brian Whitlock and Liz Summerfield.

Brian Whitlock was sent to jail for beating his dog and leaving him for dead in a dumpster in 2012. A couple of years later Whitlock was charged with murder of woman at her Dunbar home

The other dog killer, Liz Summerfield, escaped charges. She simply lied to the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital when she told them the dog with her had been ordered by the Post Office to be put down because the dog had bitten a postal worker. The Post Office never ordered the dog put down.
<>
Liz Summerfield had the family dog put to death during a series of court orders demanding she turn over to the divorce court bank records as to what she had done with the very large amount of money she’d removed from their joint accounts just prior to her filing for divorce. She refused to comply with any of the multiple court orders.
<>
Liz had removed the dog from the family home prior to her husband being served divorce papers. She refused to allow him to see his dog or any of the other two dogs she removed. The dog she killed was a Rottweiler/German Shepard cross her husband had rescued from the New Westminster Animal Shelter.
Special place in hell for those who harm children and animals
Liz instructs children throughout the lower mainland of British Columbia including Burnaby, Coquitlam, New Westminster, Maple Ridge, Port Moody, Whistler, Vancouver, in a variety of different art like puppetry, papier mache, heritage hat making, or other art forms. She may also be offering public speaking courses throughout the lower mainland.

BCSPCA warned of dog killer.

Updated April 4, 2012.

If you love animals or care about cruelty to animals then please consider joining supporting your local SPCA or other animal rights organization.

My heart almost stopped when my son told me that his mother, Liz Summerfield, had taken my dog Punzhu to the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital to be killed. Liz had told the veterinary clinic that Punzhu had bitten a postman and she’d been ordered to have Punzhu put down. This turned out to be a lie.

I checked with the post office and found out that Punzhu was with Liz outside her mother’s house when the postman approached. According to the postman and the post office, the postman did not file a complaint nor did the post office order Liz to destroy Punzhu.

I was very upset that the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital killed my dog without any written documentation from the Post Office. They killed my dog on the verbal advice of my now former wife, who simply lied to them.

Below is part of a letter, which was mailed to SPCA branches in the lower mainland, prepared by my lawyer after checking the facts.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

About four years ago I adopted a dog from the Animal Control Pound in New Westminster.

In October of 1995, my ex-wife, Elizabeth Summerfield, separated from me and left the family home, taking my dog with her. I asked my ex-wife where the dog was but she refused to tell me. I learned at the end of November, 1995, that she had had the dog euthanized at South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital on November 16, 1995.

I hope that you will not consider Elizabeth Summerfield (who may revert to her maiden name of Elizabeth Gray) as a potential adopter of animals from the SPCA in future.

Yours truly,

Ted Summerfield

Years ago I started making puzzles and called them Punzhu Puzzles after my dog, who died so very young and so needlessly. It is my hope the SPCA will remember the letter I mailed and not consider Liz Summerfield, aka Elizabeth Summerfield or Elizabeth Gray, as a potential adopter of animals in the future.

It was during our divorce Liz lied to the South Burnaby Veterinary Clinic in order to have my dog killed. Liz had my dog killed during the time she had refused several court orders to provide information on what she had done with the large sum of money she had removed from our joint bank accounts.

Fearing for the safety of my son, and what she might do to the other dogs and cats she had taken from our home, I immediately settled the divorce.

Liz works with children as an arts instructor at various lower mainland cities & towns, including Whister, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Richmond, Port Moody, Maple Ridge, Vancouver, Surrey, Langley, and other areas.

Liz teaches puppetry, lantern making, papier mache, masks, as well as instructing children in a variety of other arts related studies at festivals, public events, and community centers.

Parents should be aware of who is instructing their precious children.

Katjie supports Liz Summerfield killing animals

Earlier this year I established a memorial on PETA for Punzhu, my adopted pet who was killed by my wife during our divorce. I visited the PETA site today and found the following message had been posted.

After reading the story about “Punzhu”, whom had bitten a mailperson “fifteen” years ago, I was shocked to hear you have “just” decided to donate $25.
It’s not very difficult as to why the post office/person never had to filed a complaint of the incident. “Liz Summerfield” had taken “full” responsibility for her pet actions, this is called a responsible pet owner!
Can you image how Liz, felt when she had taken her wonderful special pet/friend to be put down? Will let me tell you that it’s not an easy thing to do for any reasons! I’ve put down a few pets, (old age) and to let them go walk over the rainbow bridge is the friggin hardest thing in life is to let my best friends go.
BTW, thanks for telling me her first and surnames. My hats off to you “Liz Summerfield” for stepping up and being a responsible pet owner! I hope others will do the same!!!!
Sincerely
Barkfish katjie

Barkfish katjie seems to share the same mental health issues as “Francis“; they both support killing innocent animals. Katjie also has some misunderstandings:

One, Punzhu was my dog, not Liz’s. I adopted him from the pound, looked after him, took him for walks and to the vet, paid all the bills, etc. etc.

Liz took him from the house the day she filed for divorce, wouldn’t let me see him or tell me where he was. Punzhu was not her “wonderful special pet/friend” as you put it.

I believe Liz viewed my dog as simply a pawn in our divorce. If anyone wants to read about some of the things that happened during my divorce you can read my fiction novel, based in parts upon my divorce, “Final Decree” here.

Two, I haven’t “just” decided to support animal groups fifteen years after my ex-wife killed my dog, for I have donated to the BCSPCA for many years before and after my ex killed Punzhu. I noticed you, katjie, didn’t contribute any money to my memorial to support PETA.

Three, Liz lied to the vets at South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital when she said the post office had ordered her to have my dog put down because Punzhu had bitten a postman.

Liz lied, katjie, and I don’t know how you or anyone can possibly support killing an animal based upon a lie. The post office never ordered Liz or anyone to have my dog Punzhu put down. Liz simply lied.

Four, katjie speaks of how Liz may have felt taking my dog to the vet and having Punzhu killed. Can you imagine how hard it would be for a son to tell his father that his father’s dog had been killed by his wife?

Can you imagine how hard is was for me to hear my son tell me that horror story? I’ve taken pets to vets to be put down because of old age and I know how that feels, believe me I know, and it doesn’t compare to the feelings I had as I heard my son tell me his mom killed my dog.

Taking a pet to be put down doesn’t come close to the pain of losing a pet through a purposeful act of your wife lying to vet in order to kill an innocent animal, possibly because the divorce was not going well in her favor at the time Punzhu was killed.

The pain of hearing my son struggle to tell me that my wife killed my dog exceeded any pain I have ever felt when I had to put one of my pets down because of old age.

If you want to read more about my divorce and the death of my dog Punzhu, read my fictional novel “Final Decree” which is based in part upon my divorce, and you may agree with the reviewer who wrote “A truly enlightening story of what “can” happen when the thief is your spouse…”

“Francis” supports Liz Summerfield killing innocent animal.

Today I received a comment from someone named “Francis” supporting Liz Summerfield lying and killing an innocent animal. How anyone can support a person killing an innocent animal is beyond me.

Perhaps “Francis” needs mental health help. Read comment by “Francis” – with my reply to her in it – and see if you agree “Francis” needs mental health help.

Animal rights organizations like PETA, BCSPCA, and other animal support organizations need your help to stop cruelty to animals and to assist animals in need. Please support these animal rights organizations and/or your local organization. Thanks, Ted.
